BACKGROUND Chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) is a common neurosurgical condition that is treated using a cranial burr hole evacuation procedure, but recurrence is common. The use of anticoagulant therapy can increase the risk of developing a recurrent subdural hematoma. We present a challenging case of a patient on long-term anticoagulant therapy following previous aortic and aortic valve surgery who had CSDH with multiple recurrences and was ultimately treated with tranexamic acid as an adjunct to surgery. CASE REPORT A male patient in his mid-sixties presented with a headache and bilateral CSDH...

BACKGROUND: Burr hole craniostomy is a widely used method for the evacuation of CSDH. However it is not clear whether the irrigation during operation improves the prognosis or gives rise to additional complications instead. This retrospective cohort study was conducted to determine this issue. METHODS: Patients attending two medical centers in China who underwent burr hole drainage with irrigation (BHDI) or burr hole drainage without irrigation (BHD) for unilateral CSDH during January 2013 to December 2016 were included in this study...

Spinal subdural hematomas (SSDHs) are rare and usually associated with bleeding diatheses, trauma, iatrogenic injury, spinal vascular malformations, or intraspinal tumors. We report a case of a 75-year-old male who developed a symptomatic lumbosacral SSDH after undergoing resection of a right temporal glioblastoma multiforme. The patient subsequently recovered and was discharged home. Over the next two weeks he developed progressively worsening symptoms of lower back pain, lower extremity weakness, and urinary retention...

INTRODUCTION: Benign extracerebral fluid collection (bECFC) can be complicated by subdural hematoma (SDH) or subdural fluid collection (SDFC). The etiology, natural history, and management strategy for SDH/SDFC in bECFC are not fully understood. We retrospectively reviewed the cases of bECFC patients complicated with SDH/SDFC and tried (1) to confirm the fact that bECFC children are vulnerable to SDH/SDFC, (2) to investigate the clinical significance of 'trauma history' witnessed by a caregiver, and (3) to determine optimal management for them...

A vast amount of literature has been published investigating the factors associated to the recurrence of a chronic subdural hematoma (SDH). However, little exists in the literature about the best medical management of the residual SDH in order to prevent the recurrence. Moreover only few studies quantitatively assess clinical and radiological outcomes of residual post-operative SDH. In this study, to our knowledge, we report the first series of chronic SDH with a quantitative outcomes analysis of the effects of fluid therapy on residual post-operative SDH...

Despite extensive investigations, the process of development of chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) is not known. The present study aims to investigate CSDH by measuring biomarkers in it, gas analysis, and immunohistochemical examination. A total of 42 patients with symptomatic CSDH who underwent burr-hole drainage were enrolled. Intraoperatively, hematoma fluid and peripheral venous blood (PVCSDH) were simultaneously collected. As controls, peripheral venous blood (PVControl) and intracranial cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) were collected from other subjects during other surgeries...

OBJECTIVE: Traumatic brain injury (TBI) in children under age 24 months has characteristic features because the brain at this age is rapidly growing and sutures are opened. Moreover, children this age are completely dependent on their parents. We analyzed the demographic data and risk factors for outcomes in TBI patients in this age group to elucidate their clinical characteristics. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the medical records and radiological films of children under 24 months who were admitted to Kyungpook National University Hospital from January 2004 to December 2013 for TBI...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Subdural hematoma (SDH) is the most common form of traumatic intracranial hemorrhage. Severity of disease in patients with SDH varies widely. It was hypothesized that a decision rule could identify patients with SDH who are at very low-risk for neurological decline, neurosurgical intervention or radiographic worsening. METHODS: Retrospective chart review of consecutive patients age ≥ 16 with Glasgow Coma Score (GCS) ≥ 13 and CT-documented isolated SDH presenting to a university affiliated, urban, 100,000-annual-visit ED from 2009-2015...

Vertebroplasy is considered an alternative and effective treatment of painful oncologic spine disease. Major complications are very rare, but with high morbidity and occur in less than 1% of patients who undergo vertebroplasty. Spinal subdural hematoma (SDH) is an extremely rare complication, usual developing within 12 h to 24 h after the procedure. We report the case of a tardive SDH in an oncologic patient who underwent VP for Myxoid Liposarcoma metastasis. Trying to explain the pathogenesis, we support the hypothesis that both venous congestion of the vertebral venous plexus of the vertebral body and venous congestion due to a traumatic injury can provoke SDH...

BACKGROUND: Cerebrospinal fluid hypovolemia (CSFH) is sometimes associated with chronic subdural hematomas (CSHs). Affected patients often develop enlargement and recurrence of the CSH, even if appropriate treatments such as epidural blood patch (EBP) and/or burr-hole surgery for the CSH are performed. This situation may lead to subclinical coagulopathy, including low coagulation factor XIII (CFXIII) activity. We retrospectively analyzed whether CFXIII activity was involved in the development of CSHs and post-treatment exacerbation of CSHs in patients with CSFH...

Various brain areas in both cortical as well as subcortical locations are involved in pathological laughter. Pathological laughter may be seen as a prodromal symptom or acute manifestation or late sequel of stroke. Various other neuropsychiatric conditions attribute to stroke. It is often difficult to ascertain the cause of pathological laughter in the presence of multiple brain pathologies. Here, we highlight a case of a 55-year-old female, who had multiple episodes of stroke and subdural hematoma, presented with pathological laughter and other behavioral abnormalities...

BACKGROUND: Chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) is sometimes refractory, and this is troublesome for neurosurgeons. Although many studies have reported risk factors or treatments in efforts to prevent recurrence, those have focused on single recurrence, and little cumulative data is available to analyze refractory CSDH. METHODS: We defined refractory CSDH as ≥2 recurrences, then analyzed and compared clinical factors between patients with single recurrence and those with refractory CSDH in a cohort study, to clarify whether patients with refractory CSDH experience different or more risk factors than patients with single recurrence, and whether burr-hole irrigation with closed-system drainage reduces refractory CSDH...

BACKGROUND: Treprostinil is a prostacyclin analog used to treat portopulmonary hypertension (PPHTN) and is one of several drugs shown to increase survival, but results in platelet dysfunction. Little is known about the management of patients on treprostinil who present with an acute subdural hematoma (aSDH). We describe such a case and offer our recommendations on management based on our experience and review of the literature. CASE DESCRIPTION: A 63-year-old, right-handed female with a history of PPHTN presented with severe headache and was found to have a large left aSDH with midline shift on imaging...

Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) is an immune-mediated disorder resulting in hyper-activation of inflammatory cytokines. If left untreated, the uncontrolled inflammatory response can lead to significant tissue injury and potentially life-threatening multi-organ dysfunction. Conventional immunosuppressive agents are available for the management of HLH, including dexamethasone, cyclosporine, and etoposide; however, patients may not respond to these therapies. Clinicians may turn toward alternative pharmacologic agents that likely have less clinical evidence...

Headache is a major symptom in chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) patients. However, some CSDH patients do not complain headache although the hematoma is thick with definite midline shift. This clinical study was performed to identify the mechanism of headache in CSDH patients. We compiled clinical data of 1080 surgically treated CSDH patients (711 males and 369 females), and in 54 cases, the pressure of hematoma was measured during burr hole surgery using a glass-stick manometer. Headache was recognized in 22...
